Finding "corn as high as an elephant's eye" proved to be quite a challenge. Since filming was to take place out of season, no tall cornfields were to be found anywhere. The job was given to the people of the University of Arizona Agricultural Department, who planted each stalk in individual containers and held their breath. With rain and good luck, the corn grew to a height of 16 feet, causing Oscar Hammerstein to quip: "The corn is now as high as the eye of an elephant on top of another elephant." See more »
When Curley and Laurey are singing "People will say we're in love," the view moves back and forth from the pair standing underneath the peach tree to standing a few feet away from the tree. The change in the shot appears intentional; however, the place where the actors stand whilst singing changes noticeably. See more »
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. Oh, what a beautiful mornin', Oh, what a beautiful day! I got a beautiful feelin' Everything's goin' my way.

In this movie Gordon MacRae could not be better. His voice along with Shirly Jones' is truly fascinating. Rogers and Hammerstein could not have done better with this wonderful movie.
Gloria Grahame is hilarious, along with Eddie Albert and Gene Nelson, they make for most of the laughs in this movie. But, of course, who cant resist to laugh at Charlotte Greenwood who plays Aunt Eller. Her wit and attitude is definitely one of the elements of this movie that makes it so enjoyable to watch.
Witty dialog and fun dancing and music, what could be better in a movie? If i sound like a advertisement, then that shows just how much I love this movie, and think you will too! Its a fun movie with laughs and, as they would say back then, plenty o' heart!
